Mark your calendar for GIS Day events on November 19th

UW-Madison and UW-Milwaukee are both hosting GIS Day events on Wednesday, November 19th.

GIS Day at UW-Madison will be held at Union South in the Varsity Hall meeting room on the second floor from 9am – 4pm. The theme for this year’s GIS Day at UW is “Geospatial: A Growing Profession Supporting Wisconsin’s Communities & Traditions.” The event will feature two keynote presentations, sessions and exhibits demonstrating GIS applications and geospatial technologies, and the event is free and open to the public. You can drop in anytime to explore the exhibitor booths or sit in on a particular presentation. However, you are encouraged to register so we can accommodate everyone and have a name tag ready for you when you arrive.

The UW-Milwaukee GIS Council has again planned a full day of activities on campus that showcase Milwaukee-area GIS projects and resources. All sessions are free, but registration is appreciated. Go to gisday.uwm.edu.  Activities include concurrent hands-on workshops, presentations by area GIS professionals, a luncheon with a featured speaker from the Milwaukee Police Department discussing GIS/Data-driven Policing, and a Map Gallery displaying numerous GIS projects by UWM and area agencies. If you have an idea for a Presentation or Ignite session you’d like to present, Map Gallery participation or vendor table, please contact Donna Genzmer (414) 229-4865 or dgs@uwm.edu.
